Bellator 257: Grachik Bozinyan Dedicates Win to Armenian People


After losing his promotional debut in 2019 to Austin Vanderford, Grachik Bozinyan had a very different outcome at Bellator 257.

The Armenian middleweight went up against Demarques Jackson, earning a unanimous decision on the evening’s preliminary card. The victory improved his record to 11-4, and snapped a two fight losing streak in the process.

Following the bout, Bozinyan spoke to the media backstage at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut, as well as to those attending online. And the Armenian proved to be a man of few words.

Asked how he felt in the fight, Bozinyan said simply, “perfect.” And on whether there were any surprises, “he has good punches. Strong punch.”

Bozinyan is sitting outside Bellator’s newly introduced rankings, and has been inactive thanks to the pandemic — but that appears to have changed. Moving forward, he stated, “I’m gonna win all my fights, and for sure, I will be in the top 10.”

Finishing up by dedicating his performance to the Armenian people, he added that “this fight is for all of my country, and my people. I dedicate [this fight to the Armenian people].”
